We Want You to Succeed
Daggett County is very interested in seeing local businesses succeed. The County has been working with the Chamber of Commerce and the Dinoland Travelboard to promote the area and to continue quality events that draw and keep visitors in the area. The State of Utah has a variety of Incentive Programs
in place that may be helpful to rural businesses.
In Late 2004, much of Daggett County was declared an Enterprise Zone
, which allows for qualifying non-retail businesses to get tax credits for expansion. In the spring of 2005 the 1st Business Conference was held at Manila High School and was very successful with over 100 people attending, including Governor Huntsman.
Other Incentive Programs
The County is currently working with the Town of Manila on a Recycling Plan that may designate parts of the County as Recycling Zones
. The State of Utah has other Incentive Programs
, but Daggett County does not have any additional incentive programs at this time.
Business Expansion and Retention (BEAR) Program
The County received a very small state grant during the past few years to assist in getting this program off the ground. More information can be found by following the link to the BEAR Page
